Each and every domain that's registered and hosted has quite a lot of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if required. For example, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the website is located; the MX records show where the emails are managed, while through an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to create and modify certain records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for instance, your present host provides good web hosting, but has troubles with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a specific company. Even though you must be able to set up and edit these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain name, many companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each and every hosting that we offer, will provide you with total access to all domain addresses that are hosted in the account. With simply a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records of any domain name which you host or subdomain which you create. You can also create or edit any sort of record that you would like, depending on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will enable you to define an e-mail server, point a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You can also register private name servers for any Internet domain that you have obtained through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted within the same account. The full DNS management service is offered totally free of charge.
